You ask….”How does one accumulate so much wealth?” pretty easy love.
Corruption, does Royalty and the odd Religious outfit ring a bell?? this goes back a long long time, then Manipulation, not only with individuals but whole countries with evil intent with Power that kills, believer it, it happens only too often, remember JFK, and others.
As for that Mexican with his paltry 76.2 Billion bucks, that’s petty cash for some….individuals that do not hit the media and who leave their exploits to their underlings….crikey even Bill Gates is worth about 73 Billion Bucks, and counting.
The amount of ‘hidden’ money and precious metals, world wide, is staggering.
I’ll post something for you, and anyone else interested to read later it’ll be called….’DYN-O-MITE’ but read it all as it leads to the world stocks of ‘Gold’ and where it is stored together-with the it’s tonnage as of 2011. Then the 13 families that control the worlds finances, all bloody interesting and enlightening. :shock::shock::shock::shock:

Good morning Squirter..thank for your reply – William "Bill" Henry Gates III was #2 on this list as of Oct 23 2012 with an estimated nett worth of 62.7 billion. I beleve you of course that accumulating that much wealth was not done honestly – but when the common try to do something dishonestly to increase theirs they end up in prison…it’s the "how do they get away with it?" that I’d like to know. Looking forward to your Dyn-O-Myte article….Cheers back…:D

You’re right Chris, there is always that real fear that comes with having something others will do anything to take away from you – and it’s usually about the things you hold dear like your children/grandchildren although there are times I’d gladly give them away..just kidding. lol

Life goes on as it always has and always will. I love Aotearoa and all her ups and downs, and have no wish to be any other place. 8)

True that manuere, just been driving through the West Coast, S.I. among beautiful bush clad roads, still very unspoiled, and the people friendly and helpful. 🙂#798701beachbelleMemberMember since: June 24, 2006

yes. we dont always appreciate what we have, been standing in my lounge loohing at the sea and Kapiti Island in front of me, behind me the Tararuas unfolding in their splendour and to the side 13 horses in a paddock enjoying the sunshine, sometimes on a clear day I can see Mt Taranaki and a glimpse of Ruapehu.#798703joybelMemberMember since: November 2, 2006

Sounds idyllic beachbelle. But if lights go out, can’t afford the power and the fridge is empty, can’t afford the food, sick but can’t afford the doctor.Whats to be done. The country holds a gun to our heads these days with costs rising all the time and the Govt. playing Russian roulette with our economy, could NZ have a For Sale sign up on the Beehive soon Any offers considered.#798705gayebelleBlockedMember since: May 28, 2008

Do you think the beehive is an asset Joybel, and worth much? 🙂
I noticed Blenheim thriving, new buildings going up, mostly supermarkets, old one’s down. The Marlborough Express is run from Nelson, just as our local paper is printed in Dunedin, and the Blenhein office is about to close to make way for townhouses.
My folk in Granity are very concerned for their area re the Mining situation, it may close! 😐
